Minh Nguyen, 38, co-founded the social networking platform Plaxo with his partner Sean Parker. Recently finding himself in jail, Nguyen has been charged with allegedly shooting his ex-wife's new husband, Corey Mattison, in their home.
Two children were in the Ashburn, Virginia residence on the night of January 15 when Nguyen allegedly visited and murdered Mattison. Shortly after Nguyen's arrival, his ex-wife Denise Mattison and another child returned home while an incident was unfolding, no other injuries have taken place. Neighbors of the deceased believe that this altercation came about due to months of conflict over child custody and visitation issues.
Mrs. Mattison took to Facebook in order to spread her story around the world, creating the In Memory of Corey Mattison, My Hero public page, in which she states that "I watched my husband lure a gunman out of the house ... he sacrificed his life to save me and to put an end to the emotional turmoil my children and I endured."
